We’ve got golden iPhones, Galaxy S5s and HTC Ones, so why not laptops? MSI has tricked out the GS60 Ghost and GS60 Ghost Pro 3K, swapping out their sleek black aluminum bodies for gilded golden chassis. The blinged-out notebooks are part of a limited edition series that will be sold exclusively on Newegg.com.

Priced at $1.899 and $2,199 respectively, the 4.36 pound, 15.35 x 10.47 x 0.78-inch Ghost and Ghost Pro feature powerful Nvidia GeForce GTX 870M graphics. The Ghost comes with a 2.4-GHz Intel Core i7-4700HQ CPU, 12GB of RAM and a 128GB mSATA SSD with a 1TB 7,200-rpm hard drive.
The Pro sports a 2.5-GHz Intel core i7-4710HQ CPU, 16GB of RAM, and two 128GB SSDs in RAID 0 configuration with a 1TB 7,200-rpm hard drive. As the name implies, the Pro 3K edition of the GS60 boasts a 2880 x 1620 retina-like display.
In terms of ports, both systems are outfitted with a trio of USB 3.0 ports, HDMI, a mini DisplayPort, Gigabyte Ethernet, a 3-in-1 card reader and jacks for headphones and a mic. Both systems will also feature SteelSeries keyboards with customizable lighting and programmable keys. And just like the version we reviewed, XSplit Gamecaster software will let you record and broadcast your gaming highlight reel.
While the gold-color exterior won’t improve your game, the limited-edition GS60 Ghost will definitely turn heads at your next LAN party.
